I like the look on the guys face - tired, maybe a bit demoralized, wondering how the heck he's going to get out of this alive.
This one is in the category of cool dungeon design.
The look on her face says it all - "Glowing eyes - that can't be good."
Great "descent into the unknown" shot
Love the light source on this one.
Do you think a skeleton is rising out of the water behind him?
That last step is a killer.
I like the look of terror in her eyes - "Why didn't I just stay in the woods and frolic with the other elves?"

Again - it's the look on the guy's face that sells this one. A nice departure from the overly heroic art that has dominated fantasy for the last few years.
Love the style and I love the cultural references that are completely lost on me.
Remember DM's - it's important to put in a means to skip multiple levels in your dungeon - a means that can also cause a combination of falling damage and dragon breath weapon damage is just icing on the cake.

Love the art style - clean, moody, interesting - good stuff.
"Why didn't I just stay in the woods and frolic with the other elves?" That's pretty good. Great pictures.ReplyDelete
these pictures all have a common trend . . . lanterns. From my unreleased DMs guideReplyDelete
When encountering an opponent that has night vision or infra vision (ability to sense body heat) depending on their light source the PLAYER’s party is surprised on a
1 – 4 if candle or starlight
1 - 3 if torch or moon light
1 - 2 if dusk, lantern or lamp light
and only on a 1 if daylight.
Creatures with infra vision or night vision are only surprised on a 1 in their natural habit.
Ranged attacks can be aimed from darkness into light without penalty; however, attacking from light to within darkness usually incurs the following modifiers . . .
Daylight: double weapon ranges if outdoors
Sub Optimal (-) dawn, dusk, lantern, lamp
Moonlight (-2) full moon, torch
Starlight (-5) moonless night, candle
Pitch (-9) vision only possible with
night vision or infra vision
“I was pursued with imprecations, arrows, and rifle balls. The fact that it is difficult to aim anything but imprecations accurately by moonlight, that they were upset by the sudden and unexpected manner of my advent, and that I was a rather rapidly moving target saved me from the various deadly projectiles of the enemy and permitted me to reach the shadows of the surrounding peaks before an orderly pursuit could be organized.” (PM, I)
Publish that DM's guide dude, because that's a great rule.ReplyDelete
the purpose of my 'darkness' rules is create fear of the dark; nothing worse then being surpised by a group of trolls -ReplyDelete
each with three flat footed attacks,
plus initiative the next round .
